The Wahl Super Taper Hair Clipper 2000 has been around for some time now but is still one of the most popular models available. Those that have reviewed it really seem to like it and have given it an average rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars and that is indeed an excellent rating. It is actually the highest rated Wahl clipper in the range so its really worth a closer look.
This one is not cheap at around £60 but it has been very well made. The quality is high as you would expect from a Wahl product. The original Super Taper product was a best seller and this one is a step up from that.
That is a tough benchmark to reach, but they have really shoved out the boat with this newer version.
It comes with 4 metal combs in sizes 1-4 (3 mm, 6 mm, 10 mm and 13 mm
It weighs 600 grams which is very light for clippers
You get the cleaning oil and brush
Uses a v 5,000 motor which has been designed as a long life motor
This one does not heat up in your hand
Cutting width is around 40 mm
These are good all round clippers and great for doing general work. If you need to do any intricate work, usually done by hairdressers, then you will need to buy clippers with a finer and smaller blade. This set are fine though for creating a shape and for general purpose.
The blades are chrome and are easy to clip on and take off. This set is run by a powerful motor and as such there is no danger of any type of snagging. (Useful to know if you are cutting kid's hair)
They are fast and the blades are really good quality, so you will always be able to get a good trim as and when you need it.
Please note that this is a corded product and it comes with a good long lead (about 8 feet or 2.3 metres) which should give you plenty of reach when it is plugged in.
That means you will not have to go in search of the elusive extension lead and we find that corded clippers are much better than the cordless variety in terms of power.
Likes & Dislikes
This product has been designed to be used in salons, barbers and hairdressers. If that is why you are buying this one, then just be aware, it is not suitable for fine and intricate work. It comes with a blade guard and also has a flat top comb.
One reviewer said this, "well what can I say the clippers is got it all reliability sharpness ,precision,above all it last longer.I recommend it to all of you that wants to buy clippers should go for it."
They are well made, powerful and reliable and as such we would have no hesitation in recommending these to you as a good buy and a good long term investment.
Having received and maintained a very high 4.7 out of 5 star rating, clearly buyers are well pleased with their purchase.
They have also been really well made and they look really good as well. Many buyers describe these as being brilliant as they have been designed to last, and are not like many of the flimsy cheaper versions on the market.
As an example the combs are even metal backed, whereas on many other clippers these are made of plastic. So yes you will pay a bit more, but you are getting much better quality.
A little bit about the Wahl brand
As i have already said, Leo Wahl was the first to invent an electromagnetic hair clipper in 1919 and so the Wahl company began. They were the first to invent many other things such as the vacuum clipper in 1965 and the cordless clipper in 1967.
Wahl products are now available in around 150 countries worldwide under the brands Wahl, Moser, Lister and more recently Groom Ease, with factories in USA, Germany, China and in England.
Certainly the Wahl products are still the choice of the professionals so you can be sure of a quality product.
I hope this has been some help to you. If you're not sure these are the ones for you then check out or Best Hair Clipper review for some more ideas and information.
